The adoption of electronic credentials and the implementation of e-credential frameworks are becoming more common within industry and government. Implementation of these solutions helps reduce total cost of operations through leveraging centralized identity management approaches for common user and customer populations. Typically, e-credentials are a common electronic based token bound to an end entity (e.g., person) used to support the services of Identification, Authentication, and maybe even Authorization. With an established credential, a user has the ability to traverse web sites, applications, and services without having to re-log into those applications to revalidate their identity.

Organizations can use the common credential as a foundational element of a robust identity management approach that allows for the creation of an identity once and leveraging it everywhere, reducing help desk and administrative costs, reducing data redundancy, and more. E-Credentials also offer organizations a flexible and standards based approach to manage large user populations. Since these technologies enroll and credential once and leverage everywhere, they allow a more realistic option to achieve the much coveted Single Sign On vision most organizations desire. There are a number of approaches and technologies that enable e-credentials as a real and tangible solution for organizations, some of which include Identity and Access Management Products, Smart Card Products, Credential Service Provider solutions, Identity Federation solutions, and more.
